Good research is often as much about solid statistics as it is about other factors. Some believe that a significant P value can be extracted from almost any data set, while others claim that statistics should best be left to the biostatisticians and epidemiologists. However, those who wish to submit their data to statistical analyses, in real time, should give JMP serious consideration. Since most research labs have students on a temporary basis as their chief workforce, an ideal statistical package should have a steep learning curve, call for no programming skills, and require only basic statistical experience.
